Pakistani pacemaker Mohammad Amir has decided to end international cricket after being removed from the New Zealand tour.
According to Pakistani media reports, Amir has announced that in a few days he will officially announce his retirement from international cricket. The 28-year-old said he could no longer work with current management.
The left, who arrived at the scene in a T20I game against England in June 2009, took part in 147 international games in which he took 259 wickets.
He was part of the Pakistani squad that won the World T20I in 2009. However, his career was faced with a downward spiral when he was banned for five years during the 2010 England tour for his involvement in the 2010 spot fixing scandal.
Upon returning to the international side, Amir played a leading role in Pakistan’s formidable tempo attack, helping the team win their first International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy title in 2017.
The Pacer withdrew from Test Cricket due to workload and participated in the limited-overs format. The decision was also severely criticized by several former players and legends.
